Interesting Glimpse of 1950s Casual Bigotry
Wow! What an fascinating trailer - all kinds of racial and ethnic slurs thrown around without a trace of shame, even the "n" word. The casual bigotry of the narration is breath taking. Elia Kazan clearly continuing his fascination with sexual frustration manifested by lots of standing around screaming a girl's name over and over. If one could look beyond the stupidity of the plot (sorry, Tennessee, but "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" this ain't), it might be worth seeing this movie just to glimpse some reflection of social attitudes in the the pre-Civil Rights South.

I have no idea if this movie is as trashy as it looks, but it looks like Karl Malden got some fast money and agreed to do exploitation flicks from now on. This is a pretty amazing trailer. No doubt influenced by Lolita, this picture just OOZES sleaze. Is this movie as half as bad as this trailer makes it out to be? Probably not, but if it is, then damn, I want to see this movie!
